    daniel was getting 20 mil a year with renault, he's got his retirement money now. mclaren made the right choice with sainz and norris as development drivers. this car and the merc engine look tasty, danny ric will be closer to the front for the next couple years. scenes.

    You have to remember that the Mclaren/Renault/Racing Point championship battle came down to literally the last race. The difference between 3rd and 5th was miniscule. They could make satisfactory improvement this year and still easily fail to finish 3rd just because of mildly bad luck, let alone an Aston Martin without a points penalty or a resurgent Ferrari.

    I just want the car to be fast. I can live with unreliable and a 4th or 5th in constructors but slow and steady would be a fail. Mclaren don't have a great record with engine changes

    The question about winning on merit is an intriguing one because all the talk about Monza was deservedly about Pierre's win...
    BUT McLaren were running P2 & P3 on merit before the chaos.

    I saw the car launch. The only team which changed the engine and still be the first to launch the car is a great merit. I really hope to see this team battle for the top, not only the 3rd in the constructors.
    I really desire to see these guys battling with Mercedes for the top spot.

    I think they weren’t the 3rd best car last year and they benefited from Ferrari dropping off and Racing Point’s awful luck. It will be tough to keep 3rd but I think they can do it because they have less question marks than the others

      Why do believe people think Mercedes is sandbagging? Mercedes is probably the most open team on the grid. They interact more with fans and are always the first to admit their mistakes when it happens. I honestly think they do have problems but Mercedes are efficient and a well oiled machine and will solve their problems by the start of the season.
